This book about Italian Frogmen states it is a work of fiction based on real events, but I didn’t get far enough to know or confirm its accuracy. I did not finish it, actually stopping reading a little way in for two good reasons.

The first is formatting: there are no new lines for speech, scene breaks, or paragraph breaks, making it hard to tell who is talking, and presenting the reader with a wall of text.

The other is the English. Two notable examples marked the page where I quit.

“None ships were in sight.”

And

“Within minutes was they eight men.”

I could give further examples, but almost every sentence on the page is like this. Read the Look Inside before you buy.

  • Dinosaur Lake II :Dinosaurs Arising
    a strong and enjoyable sequel that fans of pulp, gore and dinosaurs should enjoy.
  • Microcosmia
    Action adventure in the grain of Wilbur Smith, well written and hard to put down.
  • 3.a.m
    A great read, strong story and most readers will love this, but be aware that over half the book is made up of samples of other titles.
